A hard day on the South Downs.
I feel sure that Her Indoors is trying to finish me off. Yesterday, having first watered the allotment, we set of by train to Brighton and caught a bus to Cuckmere Haven. Leaving behind the dozen or so geography field trips, who all looked less than impressed with their teachers explanation of incised meanders etc, we strode out along the South Down Way. Well, Her Indoors strode out, I limped along behind whining piteously about my sore knees. Up and down over the Seven Sisters and Beachy Head before the long decent into Eastbourne. A well deserved couple of pints in The Buccaneer followed by a plate of fish and chips set us up for the long journey home. We arrived indoors just in time to see the final minutes of another England humiliation in the World Cup. A cracking day out. I doubt if tomorrows little stroll on the anti-austerity march will be half as much fun.
